We feel money brings happiness. We strive day and night to be rich. "I will not die poor," is a common adage in my country. Do you think happiness comes with riches.

I know people who are wealthy and live unhappy, discontented lives. I know people who are living in poverty, yet are happy and while looking to improve their situation are happy with the 'riches' they have. Money can not buy happiness.

If happiness means feeling secure, then yes, riches can lead to a happy life.

In my opinion it does - but not always.

Two different questions. Riches usually come with happiness (define "riches"?). Happiness does not necessarily come with economic sufficiency.

It is good to be rich and happy. Happiness is more in your control. If you want to be happy, you will be happy, Riches depend on your ability, luck and opportunities. Best is to have both.

Richness is to secure oneself. But money should not control us.
